Ooo, Nice and Shiny

I’m a wargamer and as such, I’m like a moth to a flame. I see something bright and shiny over there and I fly off in that direction.

I sat down for a whole 10 minutes tonight and undertook a quick summary of what I had on the go. This was partly brought on by Doug’s post about his WWII Germans. So, apart from several bazillion Russians (where did all these T34s come from), here in sunny Singapore I also have two Future War Commander forces awaiting paint, two Squadron Commander sides, 6x6mm DBA armies, 2x15mm DBA armies and a DBMM army of some 400 points that I was trying to get completed for Cancon 2012 but think I will fail on that one.

Oh, and did I mention the 15mm American Civil War? No? Well that’s because I have finally bitten the bullet as it were and after having these figures in stock for 10 years now decided that I was not going to get around to painting the buggers so thought I would send them off to a painting service. More on that later. Anthony and I have been playing American Civil War, first with On To Richmond and lately with the original Fire and Fury.

The other wargaming of late has been with Field of Glory online. Whilst I have never really liked the tabletop rules, the online game works fine – probably because I can’t actually see the calculation mechanisms at work. Those I do recommend, especially for the wargamer who spends a lot of time travelling. The nice thing is that it works well on hotel Internet connections which in many locations are not known for their speed.

Now trying to focus and get something happening this week as I have a whole week in Singapore with no trips planned until next week. To the paint table!
